Are you someone who enjoys working with your hands? Do you like fixing things, problem solving or working out how things go?
PIPS is looking for some Volunteer Equipment Coordinators, who can check, clean and fix equipment coming through our doors, so we can get them back out to families in need. Tasks may include, building and safety checking cots or bassinets, cleaning and safety checking prams (including fixing the odd broken wheel!), stripping car seats to wash and clean, dropping items to different locations for further work, plus checking other equipment as it comes in!
The PIPS team will provide training in health and safety checking and disassembly/assembly of the equipment. We are looking for someone who is keen to learn and get stuck in!
We have a small, dedicated team of volunteers at PIPS, that help to keep our drop-in centre running smoothly and help us support over 1,100 Canterbury families, each year. We would love to add you to our team! We offer a warm, supportive environment. Our volunteers are like family, providing a rich and diverse workplace - where we love to have fun!
If this sounds like you, please get in touch.
This role requires someone who is physically fit (lifting and carrying equipment will be required), a keen problem solver who’s happy to get their hands dirty and someone who enjoys a hot cuppa and chat with the team!
Tuesdays anytime between 9am and 4pm
Fridays between 12 and 4pm
